BMW X5: Removing And Installing/Replacing Right Intermediate Levers (N62 From 9/03 And N62TU)

BMW X5 (G05) 2019-2024 Service & Repair Manual / Engine / Engine (N62TU V8) / Variable Valve Gear / Removing And Installing/Replacing Right Intermediate Levers (N62 From 9/03 And N62TU)

Special tools required:

(cylinder bank 1 to 4)

Removal of intermediate levers is described separately from installation.

Necessary preliminary tasks:

IMPORTANT: The inlet camshaft must first be rotated so that when the bearing bracket is removed the intermediate levers do not slip out and damage the camshaft.

Rotate inlet camshaft in direction of rotation until cam on 1st cylinder is positioned horizontally as shown in illustration.

IMPORTANT: Camshaft bearing caps of cylinders 1 to 4 and 5 to 8 must not be mixed up.

NOTE: Bearing caps of inlet camshaft are marked on cylinder bank 1 to 4 with L E1 to L E5 from inlet side.

Release nuts and remove bearing cap L E1.

NOTE: Rocker arms are freely accessible after bearing bracket has been removed.

Do "not" remove rocker arm (1) on inlet side.

IMPORTANT: Rocker arms (1) are divided into individual tolerance classes.

The tolerance classes are designated as illustrated with the numbers from 1 to 4.

Used rocker arms (1) may only be reused in the same position.

When replacing rocker arms (1) on inlet side: install rocker arms of the same tolerance class in the same position.
